Shawn Porter became the new WBC welterweight world champion tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Many people have written Shawn Porter off during his career only to be proven wrong.

Tonight was another one of those cases where his motivation and hustle won a unanimous decision over Danny Garcia who looked a bit flat.

The boxing world could not be happier for Porter to win the title. One of the nicest guys in boxing and fighter who has now become a two-time champion.

A genuine case of hard work paying off.

Here’s some of the reaction so far:

Given the close nature of the fight in the eyes of some, perhaps a rematch could be on the cards for next year.
